Project Imagin8ion, was a user-generated photo contest that inspired a Hollywood short film, titled “When You Find Me” – produced by Ron Howard and directed by Bryce Dallas Howard.
In collaboration with Canon and the Project Imagin8ion community, they selected winning entries out of 96,000 photos submitted from across the world to inspire the main themes for the film: setting, time, character, mood, relationship, goal, obstacle and the unknown.
Here is a trailer:
Bryce Dallas Howard on how still photos inspire her creative work:
Ron Howard commented about experiencing still photos and how they inspired the movie:
“It is a very personal, visceral reaction. It is a great creative exercise, which is why I wanted to get involved.
“Basically we decided…When I say we, I mean me, my daughter Bryce Dallas Howard, who is directing it, and her writing partner Dane Charbeneau, who wrote it…We didn’t care how people labeled their photograph, or what they thought was behind it.
“We just took our inspiration from that, and linked the eight selected photographs. We created a story that was ultimately personal to both Bryce and Dane. This really is a case of an image, a work of art, inspiring someone else in a very personal way.”
